    Right I've had enough of chasing pipedreams. Seems profiteering arseholes are in the ascendancy right now. But it's OK. I can wait. I'll have mine for a fiver in a few weeks.

    I am so annoyed I was told you could not reserve them when I phoned dixons and this is crazy people buying in bulk just to sell to people who actually want them.
    I dint currently see much chance of getting one but hey there might still be other p,aces to reduce the prize like tesco and Argos, I guess I will continue to try.
    Hopefully I will succeed somewhere

    *sigh*

    Ps: there are already people selling these on eBay!!! Annoying.....

    Then you simply send it back box unopened (which they have to pay for) or you cancel it before they dispatch it - that the basis on which I've bought one full price from Dixons...

    That's the beauty of UK consumer law, you have more protection buying online than in the shop (however if Argos reduce, they have a 30 days returns policy as long as the item is unopened - even if you buy in the store).

    Seems the new base price on eBay is 180 for a 16GB. So people basically doubling their money.

    *sigh*

    I got twice through to the Dixons checkout,only for it to crash.
    On principle i woun't be buying anything else from them in future.
    No luck with Best Buy either.
    Comet/PC world nothing in any of their central Scotland stores (and hasn't been since at least lunchtime).

    Anyone got any ideas as to where is next?

    Oh soooo angry right now. I could kick the ****ing wankers who just see cheap **** and buy it regardless. Won't go on or the expletive check will probably ban me.

    I bought one from Amazon.co.uk with that in mind. Either they match the firsale price or it's going to be canceled or send back for a full refund

    This is just the final kick in the teeth for webOS fans. The fact that they are on eBay already says it all.

    It is a convergence device not mankind's disc/filmography.

    I happened to be on the phone with a nice chap at CPW and I told him I wanted two 32gb ones, and he said that would be 800ish, I said can he check with his manager, which he did and said oh, you are right, we have just dropped the price to 115 each. I get them tomorrow

    Very happy.

    If it makes you feel better I had a Pre- on launch and the 2nd one is for my friend who is a Linux nut and really wants one.

    carephonewarehouse have apparently reduced prices.

    Can't confirm myself though.... (website locked)

    Well I got one through Currys but I have now had an email saying they may not be able to fulfill it and will be contacting me. Fingers crossed I get one as I am actually a genuine WebOS fan and it's for me and not eBay!

    Don't forget Staples still have them at full price as do Amazon so all is not lost for people not lucky enough to get one in the first 'wave'. Im sure there will be more discounts to come.

    Thanks and good luck!

    Hear hear. You support something for two years, your friends laugh at you but you know in your heart you're right and that things will come good. Then the company does the dirty on you. Then finally you can see at least you can get the hardware you've craved cheaply. And then profiteering gyppos muscle in ahead of you and nab the lot.

    Words can't describe how let down i feel now. EVEN MORE than i did on Friday - and that's saying something!

    Me too, but no email...

    I'm not holding my breath on this one, I'd not be surprised if I get an email tomorrow, saying 'sorry, we ran out of stock'

    I'm told that if you get the 32gb touchpad from comet.co.uk it will price adjust in the basket -run run run!
